gonna finally get it done at the end of this month!
do anyone have any tips about installing a tranny or things i need to know? Example with fluids or lubircation?
anyhoo, aprox price of everything was $800 -it's $800, b/c i sold the auto tranny.
other then that, i'm having a lighten flywheel w/ heavy duty clutch installed. and i have the OBX short throw shfter. included in the price.
some people say OBX isn't as good as B&M, but i guess i'll have to see for myself.
so yeah. i'm happy now. $800 is fine buy me to get ride of that [censored] automatic. LOL.

You need the MT bolts for the flywheel. The AT has a different size bolt. The ones for the MT are longer than the AT since the AT uses a thin flexplate. At least that was the case for my S-13.
